Delicate, crisp and flaky, small puff pastry delights made in Italy and available at Costco!
Today I’m reviewing the Costco Matilde Vicenzi Millefoglie D’Italia Puff Pastries. These are only available at Costco during the Christmas season and the it’s a selection of small puff pastry cookies that are made in Italy.
I previously reviewed the Matilde Vicenzi Millefoglie D’Italia Ciambelline and Bocconcini Puff Pastry Cookies. Other favorite cookies of mine that are around at Costco just for the holiday season include the Costco Kirkland Signature Ginger Cookies, Shortbread Cookies and the Costco Kirkland Signature Fruit Cake.
Location in Store
You can find these Italian puff pastry cookies at Costco in the seasonal Christmas aisle, the item number is 1552956.
There’s four different flavors of puff pastry cookies in the box. Puff pastry with cream filling, puff pastry with chocolate cream filling, puff pastry with butter and puff pastry with raspberry filling.
All of the puff pastries are a little dry, crunchy, crisp and flaky! I prefer a cookie or dessert that’s a bit more chewy or soft. The pastry is so light and mildly sweet. It melts in your mouth. The plain cream one has a cream center that has a slight vanilla flavor.
The chocolate cream pastry has a chocolate hazelnut cream center that tastes similar to a Nutella but with more of a chocolate flavor. The butter flavor is just plain pastry without any cream in the center, it has a flavor similar to shortbread.
The puff pastry with raspberry filling has a jam filling that’s quite sweet. The flavor reminds me of Swedish Berries and is like an artificial raspberry-flavored jam.
These Costco Italian puff pastry cookies only cost me $7.79 Canadian which is really cheap considering that they’re from Italy and you get a lot of cookies for that price!
You can store the puff pastry in a cool, dry place. They have an expiry date of about 10 months from the date I purchased them. They’re a product of Italy and you get four individually wrapped trays of puff pastry in the box. Each tray has a different flavor.
Once you open the plastic wrap there’s no way to reseal the tray of pastries. I just put them in large Ziploc bag to store them. The packaging is definitely not the most environmentally friendly! There’s a ton of packaging for not that many cookies.

Give it a try!
I like these enough, they’re simple and tasty but not mind-blowing or amazing. I think someone who enjoys puff pastry will like these.
